GUINEA

Guinea is a country in West Africa formerly known as French Guinea. The country’s current population is estimated at 10 and a half million.  Guinea’s size is almost 246,000 square kilometres.

Richly endowed with minerals, Guinea possesses over 25 billion metric tons of bauxite, an aluminium ore. Joint venture bauxite mining and alumina operations in northwest Guinea historically provide about 80% of Guinea’s foreign exchange. The refinery supplies about 750,000 MT of alumina for export to world markets. Diamonds and gold also are mined and exported on a large scale. Despite the opening in 2005 of a new road connecting Guinea and Mali, most major roadways connecting the country’s trade centers remain in poor repair, slowing the delivery of goods to local markets. Electricity and water shortages are frequent and sustained, and many businesses are forced to use expensive power generators and fuel to stay open.
